When Snake Was Lyfe: Growing Up In Australia In The 90s

With the news that iTunes has been given the axe (say it isn’t so!) we’re experiencing a wave of nostalgia as we think about what on earth we did before we experienced the revolution that was the iTunes Music Library.

Growing up as a 90s kid was a world away from growing up in the noughties – for one thing we didn’t have the internet (gasp!) and our version of Netflix entailed physically driving to a mystical dwelling known as a “Video Shop”. Parents could pay for things using paper money (aka “a cheque”), mobile phones were reserved for the rich and famous, and you were considered the height of fashionable if you owned a Snap Bangle.

If you too grew up in Australia in the 90s, join us as we celebrate these unusual realities.
